I get the impression that Lee Wulff was one of those rare talents who had the ability to be really good at whatever he decided to do.
My all-time favorite movie is Bruce Brown's classic surf film "The Endless Summer." To me, "Wings for an Angler" has that same sense of adventure. It really struck a chord with me when I watched last night. These guys had no fear of the unknown. They just went for it. I'm sure they struck out now and then but they certainly hit quite a few grand slams as well.
This is well worth twenty minutes of your time
